Abstract—Due to the wide usage of the object-oriented paradigm as a development paradigm many researches have proposed metrics to measure the complexity of object-oriented programs. The proposed object-oriented metrics can be divided into two categories based on the main aspect they have considered: metrics based on object-oriented aspects and metrics based on the cognitive aspects. Majority of the metrics which belong to the latter category have relied on a maximum of three complexity factors to derive the complexity of a program. CB measure is one of the few metrics that has considered four or more complexity factors to measure the complexity associated with a software program. However, there exists some other factors that could be considered by the CB measure to make it a more practically applicable measure. Such factors were proposed by the authors in a previous study. This paper demonstrates how those factors can be incorporated to the CB measure. In addition, it validates the practical applicability of the modified CB measure.

Index Terms—Object-oriented paradigm, software complexity, complexity metrics, CB measure
